Letter: Commit to solving city’s challenges

Published:

 

Councilman Bill Turlay’s recent assertion — that, as a fighter pilot, operating an aircraft “where weather is made,” makes him some sort of expert on the complex science determining global warming — is ludicrous. He’s no more an authority on the global ecosystem than a surfer is on the science of hydrodynamics.

I thank Turlay for his service to our country, and thank him for stepping up to serve our community, but please leave the right-wing agenda at the front door and let’s set about solving this city’s problems and meeting its many challenges. And I thank the other committed members of the council as well.
